MTV has canceled Randy Jackson’s America’s Best Dance Crew after seven seasons.
I’m bummed. But it’s good that Mario Lopez was able to find another hosting gig! He has at least one more season with that show, we think.
MTV has canceled “America’s Best Dance Crew” after seven seasons.
Dance competish show, produced by Warner Horizon and Randy Jackson’s banner, was a springboard for the careers of several dance crews, most notably the Jabbawockeez troupe.
“ABDC” once topped in cable among viewers 12-34, but MTV saw ratings slide as the series progressed. Choreographer Shane Sparks, the only pro dancer at the judges’ table during seasons one through four, ankled after the fourth season due to child molestation allegations unconnected to his work on the show. Fellow judges JC Chasez and Lil Mama remained throughout the program’s run.
In a statement, MTV said: “We are grateful to Randy Jackson and Warner Horizon for having brought our audience seven amazing seasons of dance with ‘ABDC,’ and look forward to more successful and dynamic entertaining collaborations in the future.”
